Movie Review: Project X

It’s movie review day here at Glitter, Bliss, and Perfect Chaos. Today we’re seeing the movie, Project X. Project X is a movie about teenagers who want to be popular and think if they throw the most EPIC party  they will. I saw an advertisement for this movie that said something like if Superbad and The Hangover had a party, this would be it.

Here’s the trailer:

The Verdict: I loved both Superbad and The Hangover. This was not like either. It really wasn’t funny. It didn’t have the great comedic element that both of those movies had. Here’s a great review I found. So this is the part where I would normally rate the movie.

Since this is all about fantasy, I’ll pretend I’m the hottest girl at school. The girl who only dates college boys, but agrees to come to the lame nerd’s party. I bring a bunch of my friends and all the hot guys from school are there, but I decide that since it’s the little geek’s birthday, I should hookup with him. Cause I’m nice like that. I have school spirit or maybe I just like to party. And this party was epic. Like there were like over two thousand people, and we were drinking and dancing and having a ball. But then the DJ announced that the cops were coming. So like the DJ turned off the music and went Shhhh, and we like all hid in the back yard and were super quiet. Then as soon as the cops left, BAM, baby, the party was BACK ON.  And I danced and it was like totally epic. Then the cops came again, but we refused to disperse cause we all were like drunk and had taken ecstasy. The cops said they’d come back when things simmered down. Like which was so AWESOME, so then things got really crazy when this dude was standing on a car and shooting fire everywhere and the whole street like started burning. But this party was EPIC and HOLLYWOOD and none of the two thousand people who had attended got hurt! OR arrested! And then when the kid (like the geek who’s house was totally trashed, like I’m NEVER having a party at my house) showed up at school on Monday, we all like cheered for him and now he’s popular and loved by all. Oh, and he got the girl. Like not me, cause like I’m above that and into college boys, ya know. So it just goes to show you that the geek can get the girl. Even if it’s only the girl that he’s known all along. 

(I’m the mother to two teenage children and enjoyed partying myself in high school and college. I do feel the need to point out that at the party they all mixed ALOT of alcohol with Ecstasy. Hopefully teens know how dangerous this can be. The combination of the two can cause extreme dehydration, which can lead to muscle breakdown and kidney, liver and cardiovascular failure.)

So I want to open this up to you. Have you seen the movie? Tell us your age, what you thought of the movie, and how you would rank it!!

Just a reminder of how we rank movies here at Glitter, Bliss, and Perfect Chaos:

One Star = Walk of shame. I was in last night’s dress, carrying my shoes as I rushed off. I can’t believe I wasted my time on him and pray no one I know sees me.

Two Stars = Bad date. He didn’t really do anything wrong, we just didn’t have any chemistry. Maybe he just wasn’t my type. I probably won’t answer if he calls.

Three Stars =Hookup. We had a great night together. Don’t know if it will be more than that, but it was sure fun while it lasted.

Four Stars = Stalking him. What a night! We danced, we kissed. Now if I could just get him to call me.

Five Stars = Happily ever after. I love him! I want to marry him, have his babies, and live happily ever after.
